The Los Angeles Rams certainly haven’t wasted any time when it comes to their offseason and rebuilding plan. The organization understood what needed to be done this offseason, with a coaching vacancy and staff waiting to be composed.
After a few weeks of deliberation and the interview process, the organization elected to hire Sean McVay as their next head coach. McVay agreed to a five-year deal, becoming the youngest head coach in NFL history.
While McVay quickly rose through the ranks of the Washington Redskins organization, he now resides as the top dog for a team that is desperate for success. The initial relocation to Los Angeles didn’t pan out as expected, as the Rams put together a 4-12 season.
However, the Rams’ organization is quickly moving on, with a bright future in tact for the offensive-minded McVay and No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff.
McVay hasn’t wasted any time with his coaching staff, attempting to bring a group of veterans to help mold his team. He immediately signed proven veteran coordinator Wade Phillips as the new defensive coordinator of the Rams. Phillips passed up on other opportunities, stating he was more intrigued with helping the proven defense.
On Wednesday, the Rams announced another possible addition to the coaching staff, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
Former Jaguars OC Greg Olson, a favorite to become Bills OC, now is planning to become the Los Angeles Rams QB coach, per league source.

As Schefter mentioned, Greg Olson passed up on other opportunities to come over to Los Angeles. The former Jacksonville Jaguars’ coach now gets an opportunity to work close with McVay, in order to help develop Goff.
Although McVay still has multiple positions left to fill, the Rams coaching staff is starting to form into a respectable, formidable opponent moving forward.
